My H1B case got denied. What are my options ? I have a meeting with PWC Law later during the day, but I am starting to worry

@OP, was it an extension or a new case. I had a colleague whose extension was denied but PwC law later reapplied and he is back in the country.

My extension was denied last year and PwC Law reapplied, and it came through. I din’t have to leave the country because my i94 had not expired yet.

My H1B extension got denied. PwC reapplied and the petitions got approved. However, I had to leave the country. PwC transferred me to the office in my home country and currently I am working from there while I wait my for the visa interview.

Now a days instead of a query, it is denial. Do not worry, companies like PWC will get the H1b. I have seen this with few other folks and only small companies h1b are really denied.

Thank you all. I am scheduled to leave the country next week. I am hopeful that I get approved the next time they file

Was it extension or new filing?

Lawyers will not say anything new, option for you is to leave asap

My friend working for PWC had to leave to Canada 🇨🇦 and bought back

Please talk to the legal about guidance for staying in the US, if it was just an extension and your previous I797/H1B visa is still valid then you should be able to stay until that expires. But again, check with the legal they should be able to provide accurate guidance

Reason for denial ??

Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful.

Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
